The fear of Gandmool or “Gandants” is highly prevalent in our society. At the time of birth astrologers often terrorize the parents if a child born under certain Nakshatra. It is important to understand the myth and reality.
What is Gandmool ?
When a child takes birth, his/her father goes to an Astrologer to find out the astrological details. Astrologer makes the horoscope and tells important things to native’s father. Sometimes Astrologer says that child has taken birth in Gand Mool Nakshatra.
According to the Indian Vedic Astrology, Nakshatras are the important part of our lives. Indian Vedic Astrology considers Nakshatra (in which we are born) to be the one of most important aspects of our lives. There are 27 Nakshatras in the zodiac. All the Nakshatras affect human lives as per their astrological importance.
The Nakshatra, in which Moon is placed at the time of birth, is called Janma Nakshatra (Birth Star). Janma Nakshatra has a great significance in our lives. Therefore it is very important to know the effects of Nakshatras on the different aspects of the life like health, wealth, prosperity etc. In general, there are detailed studies on Nakshatras are available in different astrological books but here.
Out of the 27 Nakshatra 6 Nakshatra are ruled by Mercury and Ketu . These are called Gandmool Nakshatra. They are
5. Moola and
These six Nakshatra have been categorized into two parts, Nakshatra of Ketu and Nakshatra of Mercury.The first series of Gandmool Nakshatra consists of Ketu Nakshatra which are Ashwini, Magha and Mool.. The second series of Gandmool Nakshatra consists of three Nakshatra of Mercury which are Ashlesha, Jyeshtha and Rewati.
If the natal Moon in the horoscope of a child is in one of these Nakshatra, the child is said to be born in Gandmool Nakshatra. According to many astrologers and astrological books the child born in these Nakshatra is inauspicious. They suggest the Shanti Prayog of the Nakshatra after 27 day when same Nakshatra repeats. It is believed that if a child is born in Gandmool Nakshatra, his father should not see his face for 27 days till a Gandmool Shanti puja is performed. Many scholars also believe that Gandmool Shanti for Mercury Nakshatra can be carried out on the 10th or 19th day from the day of birth.
If a native has taken birth in any of these Nakshatra, a Shanti Karma is suggested on the day when same Nakshatra repeats. Shanti Karma may include Shivarchana, Homam for the ruler of Nakshatra and full procedure of Mool Shanti Prayoga. It is suggested that this Shanti Vidhan is quite necessary as an effective remedy to overcome the ill effects of Gandmool Nakshatra.
Some astrologers say that Gandmool is an Astrological myth. I do not agree with them.
In my experience I found that the native suffered health problems in his childhood if he took birth in these Nakshatra. If a native of Gandmool Nakshatra survives, he is found to be more intelligent compared to other children. We have examples of Saint Tulasidas and Saint Kabir. In addition to this, I have experience of analyzing the horoscopes of Many Gandmool born Natives where I found that if there is any Aristi (Danger to life) in horoscope like Pataki Aristi then native’s Aristi is further intensified by the Gandmool Nakshatra.
In addition there are many other effects of Gandmool. These will be discussed in the Next blog .
